Come join fellow VSAE members for the third annual SIG-a-Palooza. 

A SIG-a-Palooza is a collection of small Shared Interest Group (SIG) meetings. The SIGs are member-led groups organized around areas of interest. They offer a forum for peer-to-peer learning in a small group atmosphere. The SIGs are a great way for association executives and other leaders to learn from colleagues about the issues relevant to them. If you've never been to SIG meeting, now is the time to try one out.

The SIG-a-Palooza is open to all, including Associate members and guests. A breakfast buffet, at which volunteers will be recognized, precedes the SIG meetings. VSAE members can register for $20 and non-members for $35 if done by Tuesday, August 7, 2018. On-site registration is available and subject to higher fees.
